On Friday, September 19, we celebrated the launch of Father Figure in the Boogie Down Bronx.
The Bronx Documentary Center was the perfect venue, and many folks came out to show their support! There were plenty of food and drinks, a giant slideshow projected on the building across the street, and a line out the door to get books signed. We gave out free ceiba cookies and Father Figure postcards and loved meeting and speaking with everyone, from locals, to photo enthusiasts.
Thank you all for making the night so magical and powerful. We truly appreciate it!
A big thanks to all those who came out, especially to the BDC team, Taye Diggs, Yusef Salaam, David Gonzalez, Trymaine Lee, Ruddy Roye, Amy Wolff, and most especially to all of the fathers and families in the book.
The book and other merchandise are available in our store.
